I’m so torn.. I don’t know what to make. I have 2 Westminster jelly rolls in Jennifer Paganelli’s Flower Power. Love, love, love the fabric and want to make something for my mom. I think I love it so much that I just want to use 1 of the rolls and keep the other for myself! =D I’ve narrowed it down to 4 options, if you can call that narrowing it down.
Here are the patterns I’m trying to pick from:
Decisions, decisions. I don’t think I can go wrong with any of these.

This is my own design! I drew it up in Illustrator, uploaded to Spoonflower.com and received it in less than 2 weeks. Very happy with fabric and the entire process.
Fairly simple to make- I backed it with an orange and white pattern fat quarter fabric, put a piece of scrap quilting batting in between.
To sew place your batting down, lobster fabric on top (right side up), then backing fabric face down. Sew around leaving about 6 inches to turn it back to the right side. Then sew up the hole.
Quarter inch edging around the sides – not the top where the tie goes.
Tie: Cut and sew together to form one long piece. Fold in half and iron > open > folded the edges to the iron line > then fold in half again and iron. The result is 1/4″ inch strips. Then sew along down the middle and attaching to the front of the bib. I did take photos along the way and will get those uploaded shortly.
